And the winner is ....

Disco Inferno...Shayde.

The competition was tough at the Weartable Arts Show.  There are some very creative people around here.

Our little princess looked charming as a music box ballerina and was a bit of a crowd favourite (especially in the family row of seats)

Krystal and her friend looked great but I didn't get a decent photo of them together.  I always have terrible difficulty getting photos in this school hall, no matter how close my seat is to the runway.  Flashing lights don't help either.  This shot isn't very good but I love the look on Shayde's face as the second placegetter's name was called and she realized she had won.

My best shots of the night were of Georgia and her Best Friend Ever, Archer as they watched the proceedings.

Their birthdays are just days apart so they were the new kids at school together and have been inseparable ever since.  Archer and his sister Niamh had worked together on their entry in the Hat Section and were delighted to come third.  My fault his hand is blurry, I shouldn't have waved at him.

The school's Kapa Haka ( traditional Maori performance art) group opened the show.  I love the way the little one couldn't resist a peek at the big screen.

So, that's Wearable Arts for another year.  I wonder what the theme will be next year?
